2. Uwangalifu katika Huduma ya Fungu la Kumi
Stewardship, Ministry, and the Tithe
(Swahili and English)

An overview of the topics of stewardship and tithing, including the history and purpose of the tithe. The main points of this message are:

  1. Everything belongs to God. Kila kitu ni cha Mungu (Psalm 24:1; Deuteronomy 10:14).
  2. We are stewards over God's property. Sisi ni walinzi kwa vitu vya Mungu (1 Corinthians 6:19-20; Matthew 25:14-30; 1 Corinthians 4:2).
  3. The tithe belongs to the Lord. Fungu la kumi ni la Mungu (Leviticus 27:30-33).
  4. God uses the tithe to provide for His ministry on earth. Mungu hutumia fungu la kumi kupeana kwa hutuma yake hapa duniani (1 Samuel 8:17; Genesis 14:20; 28:22; Numbers 18:21-24; Deuteronomy 12:6-19; 14:22-29; 26:12-15).

Tithing is linked to spiritual renewal and revival in the Bible (Hezekiah - 2 Corinthians 31:2-10, 10; Nehemiah 13:10-12). The principle carries over to the New Testament (Matthew 23:23; 1 Corinthians 9:13-14). We are not under law, but under grace. However, to give less under grace than under law is a dis-grace.

This teaching was given by Dr. Ralph F. Wilson at African Renewal Pastors' Training Conference in Eldoret, Kenya, October 26-29, 2011. It is available as part of a DVD set in PAL format. It is part of a series of videos on YouTube on giving and tithing.
